'Oh how wonderful life would be, if I had my own little house in a tree!' This one was created for the Urban Explorer Challenge and I loved every minute of it! As a lover of the natural environment I had to draw on where my heart lies so a treehouse seemed a fitting response!
A botanical explosion to celebrate Mother Nature in all her floral glory! Drawn in pen and ink and really therapeutic to do!
A floral botanical illustration around the words of the famous poem and hymn by Cecil Alexander "All Things Bright & Beautiful'. Drawn in pen & ink with another on the way...'All creatures great & small.
Commission Request for a clients wife who loves Flamingos and Victoriana. What can you do? Tah Dah!!!!! This was so much fun, I feel more of these coming soon....watch this space!
Gorgeous little lady this one....
Tabby Cat....commission for vets. He looks very proud of himself this young man! I am lucky enough to get to draw all these wonderful animals for a vet. He provides the families with an A5 portrait print of their pet as part of his VIP club. This means I have all the original A4 drawings which i am happy to sell.
My final entry for Stage 3 of the doodle addicts challenge! I have loved doing these challenges. They have not only got me drawing things I wouldn't have considered off my own back, but they have brought me out of my comfort zone too. Drawing steam is harder than I thought!!!
Another pet portrait!.......I'm just loving doing these.
This is little Finley the Border Terrier. He is a recent commission. I haven't ever drawn a dog so really enjoyed doing this whilst trying to keep to my black and white line style.
Gorgeous little Rupert the West Highland Terrier. He was drawn using black fine liners on A4. Love doing the animal portraits... I love it when their little eyes suddenly peep out the paper! Available as an A4 print.
Gentleman Cat was modelled on a victorian oil painting with a special family cat as the star of the show! Part of a pair for a special Christmas present.

I came across these Sepia Fine Liners! Had so much fun experimenting with them. Looking forward to creating some more images with these.
Black and white line drawing of two little badgers having an explore, celebrating my personal love for wildlife.
Thought I would have a go at a competition! It has encouraged me to diversify within one image and think outside the box. I'll see how it goes!
Another commission and another Springer. These are one of my favourites to draw as theres such a mixture of texture and shape.
'Lucky' Such a beautiful face to draw...nearly done!
Just about there with this one. Not sure if it works as I wanted it to!
My Illustrated Alphabet letters were born out of a project in 2016. Each was drawn with pen & ink and each letter is illustrated with either an object, flora, fauna or wildlife that begins with that letter.
I love gardens! I was recently at the opening of the Abbey Millennium Garden so thought I would produce a piece of work celebrating the new garden.
A feast of all things flora and fauna!
